Yep,He will be keeping the fur soon.
When it comes down to the nitty gritty he will do what is necessary-Like the Andes plane crash survivors.

I think Bison would be quite heavy weight wise compared to Bear.
Robes are easy to make,either with a fur sewing machine or even by hand.
Must be local people that can sew you one.
All you need is a couple good tanned prime bearhides.

I think polar bear and muskox would probably be the warmest hides. When you look at them with thermal they give off very little heat signature.

Fur, heck. Down here we made do with cotton and wool. You ought to sleep under some of these quilts my great and great grandmothers made.

But thats the rub. The last ladies that I knew just how to hang a quilting frame and piece together a quilt top have been dead and gone for a few years now. But I do still have my mama's, it was her aunt's, treadle singer sewing machine.

I dont think you are allowed to own Polar bear hides in the US.

Wolfie I've been a fan of yours for years. You are a go getter no doubt. I've watched you modify every trap known to man but I have yet to see a catch picture. Post them pictures up. I will get my daughter to teach me how to post pictures and between the two of us hopefully we can help some beggingers.

warrior, my wife and her sister still make quilts. The quilting is done with a machine instead of by hand like gramma did it. They dont have any trouble selling them. I think they sell them too cheap for the time involved. The one we sleep under when it gets cold has a heavy wool blanket inside of it. I like my bedroom window open in the winter when i am sleeping. Have enough coyotes in the freezer I am thinking about a coyote blanket. might not be bear skin warm but i bet warm enough for KS. Moyles tannery stuff falls apart after a dozen years or so. I need to find a better tannery first.

The West is said to have traded its souls for stuff. What could possibly go wrong there?

You'd think all the hordes of grumblers would be happier, what with all the stuff they have.
But, weird thing 'bout stuff.
It makes life easier but it sure doesn't make life more joyful.

Europe, the birth place of the Renaissance and the Enlightenment to follow, is where it is by design.
And the Americas have always been enamored by the elites of Europe so we march along with them, though a step behind.
But we are them, and they are what we will be.

History tells us it's about a 30 year gap, so grab the popcorn, tune into Europe and see the future.

Blessings,
Mark

I agree with Wolfdog, fur articles have to sell for less money or they're not going to sell to the average shopper. It's not like the trapper is going to lose money, we ain't making anything to begin with.

Yes, BOCO, your bear blankets are warm and beautiful but let's see how many will sell in Walmart at 1,800+ dollars each when sitting beside blankets selling for 10 each. Most people that can't afford to buy food will probably buy 5 ten dollar blankets first.

Catch, you're going way overboard on Wolfy. I read every post and feel Wolfy may have disagreed but did not ATTACK anyone.

Now some of these ideas make sense. Not to me, but to the hobby trapper. frown

The ole mitt market ain't what she used to be when they started putting handwarmers on sno-gos. And the hat market slowed down by the no windshield sno-go and full faced helmet market. frown

Europe is not going to outfit itself in fur coats and blankets this winter--regardless of how much fur marketing happens. Not only do the economics, politics and fashion preferences make it improbable, the logistics of this fur boom, that would have to start this month, make it impossible.

I had to quit the online sales that the wife got me into-couldnt keep up with the demand.Sold out too fast didnt have anything left to sell at the pow wows in the summer.
I thought about raising prices to lessen demand a bit but I didnt feel right about doing that.The only time I ever raised prices was to pass on increases in my costs,like for some stuff sent out to the dressers etc.
